Invicta FC 21: Anderson stops Tweet in second round, becomes interim featherweight champ

Australian Megan Anderson overcame a valiant effort by Canadian Charmaine Tweet with an eruption of strikes that forced a second round stoppage at Invicta FC 21 in Kansas City.

Both fighters landed their share of strikes, but Anderson dictated the pace and was the busier, more impactful fighter, keeping Tweet on her heels and on the outside.

With the win, Anderson becomes the interim Invicta featherweight champion.
